Adamant Entertainment is proud to present The Imperial Age, our line of Victorian/Steampunk products, made for use with d20 Modern or Past.

Imperial Age: Grimoire is designed to add realism to hermetic traditions in Victorian-era supernatural campaigns. This supplement describes the basics of ritual magick, enhancing the material found in Imperial Age: Magick (although usable separately as well).

Unlike the stereotypical fireball-throwing fantasy wizard, hermetic disciples performed elaborate rituals (or incantations) to produce magickal effects. Many of these rituals were interpreted, duplicated, and translated from ancient sources and codified in a book, or grimoire, from which other members of an occult society could study and implement.

Imperial Age: Grimoire provides information on the historical practices of ritual magick, details four grimoires which can be used as-is or modified for your Victorian-era campaign, and, for your convenience, this supplement also contains a complete Imperial Age spell and incantation list compiled from the Modern SRD to be used in the creation of your own grimoires.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
